Trunk Show at Art-Is-You in Stamford, CT. October

I have been feverishly working on my Steampunk jewelry to sell at the Trunk Show in CT this October.  I have made some very interesting items, such as necklaces that can be worn as belts, Steampunk items with a Victorian edge to them.  Some Items are quite large, if you like that type of jewelry and some are regular size.  I love making hearts and using Ice Resin with them.  I started working with Ice Resin a while ago and I am now addicted!  I will post some pictures to give you a preview shortly.

New Recipe

While I was exercising, I watched the Food Network Channel.  I love to watch Giada.  Today, she had an awesome recipe for dessert.  She made Fried Banana Split.  Here is the recipe:

makes 2 servings

1/4 cup of water
4 oz semisweet chocolate
two bananas
1 Tbls. butter
brown sugar to coat
toasted almonds

Put 1/4 cup of water in a double boiler.

Chop the chocolate into small pieces
Melt the chocolate in the water in the double boiler until it looks like satin

Cut the tops and bottoms off of the bananas and then slice the skin down the middle
peel and cut the bananas in half and then half again.  You should have 8 pieces.

Melt 1 Tblsp of butter in a non-stick frying pan while you coat the bananas
To coat them, put some brown sugar into a pie dish and coat both sides of the bananas.

Cut side down, place them in the butter in the frying pan for 30 seconds.

Pour the melted chocolate over them and add some toasted almonds on top

Art Trunk Show in CT at Art-Is-You

I have decided to put everything on hold for now because before I know it, October will be here.  I am vending at the Art Trunk Show on Saturday and need to get all my jewelry done.  This year, I will have necklace stands that you can purchase as well.  What better way to display a necklace on a decoupaged necklace stand?
I will have different items than I had the last time and sure hope you visit my table to check them out!
